The thought of forking over $15 for a taste of a Black Tap milkshake can be horrifying for a college student (thanks, tuition). Well, that and the fact that not all of us live close enough to the Big Apple to get a taste. As a gift to all college students, we have come up with a salted caramel pretzel shake that will spare you your cash and journey to NYC.
